PlaceAttribute QML Type

The PlaceAttribute type holds generic place attribute information. More...

Import Statement: import QtLocation 5.12
Since: QtLocation 5.5


Detailed Description

A place attribute stores an additional piece of information about a Place that is not otherwise exposed through the Place type. A PlaceAttribute is a textual piece of data, accessible through the text property, and a label. Both the text and label properties are intended to be displayed to the user. PlaceAttributes are stored in an ExtendedAttributes map with a unique key.

The following example shows how to display all attributes in a list:

  import QtQuick 2.0
  import QtPositioning 5.5
  import QtLocation 5.6

  ListView {
      model: place.extendedAttributes.keys()
      delegate: Text {
          text: "<b>" + place.extendedAttributes[modelData].label + ": </b>" +

The following example shows how to assign and modify an attribute:

      //assign a new attribute to a place
      var smokingAttrib = Qt.createQmlObject('import QtLocation 5.3; PlaceAttribute {}', place);
      smokingAttrib.label = "Smoking Allowed"
      smokingAttrib.text = "No"
      place.extendedAttributes.smoking = smokingAttrib;

      //modify an existing attribute
      place.extendedAttributes.smoking.text = "Yes"
